A local company fizzes its way to become a part of an American icon's history.
The Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Bryan is celebrating 100 years of bottling one of the world's most popular brands of drink.
In 1907, George, Louis, and Charles Stephan established the Coca-Cola bottling company.

The company's Sales Center Manager Pat Patrick says employee understand just how significant their achievement is.
"It's an achievement that few businesses get to go through and it shows the commitment to our community to stay strong," Patrick said.
